  • "This is a lovely place to rest and relax after a day exploring the Peak District."

    It is only a short drive to many walks, stately homes and castles. There is a quirky pub specialising in all things cheese that is a short but steep walk uphill and a CAMRA pub a 20 minute walk away but this one doesn’t do meals, however just a few minutes drive you can find plenty of places to eat. The welcome pack was really good and enough to get you through until breakfast if you haven’t brought anything with you. The property is attached to the owner’s house but fenced off for a private patio area with the hot tub and after the initial introduction we didn’t see him until we were leaving.

  • "Best welcome pack we’ve ever received, wonderful views from the decking."

    A very pleasant helpful host, without him being intrusive. Altogether nothing negative to say about this property, we definitely recommend it.

The property

Unstone 0.8 miles.

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Apperknowle near Unstone, Derbyshire, is this fantastic two-bedroom annexe of the cottage, Jesmond Dene.

Boasting fantastic countryside views, Jesmond Dene is a superb dwelling for couples or a family of four.

Leave your vehicle in one of two off-road parking spaces, before making your way into the property along the decking which features a non-slip track up to the entrance.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to whipping up tasty meals for your loved ones, ready to enjoy at the dining table over a bottle of wine.

If the weather is nice, make dinner an alfresco affair and dine out on your private decking as you soak up the panoramic views.

After dinner, why not indulge in a dip in the bubbling hot tub after a long day of exploring?

As the evening grows dark, retire to the plush sofas where you can kick-back and relax in front of a much-loved film on the TV.

Throw your clothes into the utility room's washing machine, before freshening up in the neighbouring shower room.

When sleep calls, retreat to one of two well-presented bedrooms, a super king-size and en-suite shower room, and a bunk room.

Explore your local surroundings, where nearby, you will find the welcoming Travellers Rest and Miners Arms where you can treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal and sample the local ales.

For a wider selection of amenities, head to the nearby village of Unstone, where you can stock up on fresh produce and essentials at the farm shop.

Visit the nearby bustling town of Dronfield, where you can picnic in the picturesque Cliffe Park, enjoy leisurely strolls along the River Drone or spot the local wildlife in the Dronfield Nature Park and the Metapic Woods Nature Reserve.

Next stop is Chesterfield, where you can test out your clubs at the excellent Tapton Golf Course, enjoy the delights of the expansive Holmebrook Valley Country Park with its large lake and lovely cycle paths, catch a live performance at the Winding Wheel Theatre or treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy.

Continue on to the bustling city of Sheffield, where you can marvel at the remarkable cathedral, visit the museums of Weston Park, Kelham Island and National Emergency Services, and the Mayfield Alpacas Animal Park.

For further scenic walks and cycling trails, venture into the Peak District National Park, where you can explore fascinating caverns, hike up imposing peaks and tour the esteemed Chatsworth House.

All this and more awaits at Jesmond Dene.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
